Pros: "Seats were comfortable, service was fine."
Cons: "Boarding experience."
Pros: "Easy flight, no hassle, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight on time and not wait 30 min on the runway to get to a gate once landed"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 40 mins, then left 40 mins after scheduled even including the delay, no free in seat entertainment and the wifi was broken. Really not a fun flight overall. Also, please Alaska, get rid of that Cabernet Sauvignon that's sweeter than grape soda. Single worst wine I've ever tasted."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was comfortable even though in the last row..helped that there was no one in the middle seat."
Cons: "Under seat luggage space on aisle seat is smaller than middle and window so is difficult for carry on/leg room."
Cons: "Alaska airlines delayed the flights by at least an hour both ways SFO-Newark. The Alaska terminal at Newark is a very poor experience."
Pros: "Crew was nice and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Very inefficient delay of 5 hours without much empathy on improving the experience for all travelers."
Cons: "The entire flight crew was RUDE! Rolling their eyes at passengers constantly no matter what you asked them, shoving drinks at you, snatching trash from you, and rude. Very disappointed in Alaska!"
Pros: "I was given an exit row seat since there were so many open seats and it reminded me of flying before 9/11. I’m 6’6” and pre9/11 I was always ushered to an exit iris seat. So it was extremely thoughtful of the check-in agent to do that for me."
Cons: "The flight crew, check-in agent everyone was awesome and the flight was a real pleasure."
Cons: "Great service. Wish we flew Alaska both ways instead of United ☹️"
Pros: "The crew was IMPECCABLE. Peggy, John, and Kristin are true professionals with the utmost sincerity and kindness, that is extremely appreciated during travel."
Cons: "The Newark airport staff was rude and made us, as passengers, feel like we were an inconvenience to them as we were going through security. Not sure if this is just the “east coast” mentality, but we could have done without the attitude when just trying to get into the TSA Precheck line."
Pros: "Great crew, 2 drink services"
Pros: "The seat was fine and the seatbelt just barely fit."
Cons: "Saw a bedbug on my window!!! Wasn't notified that they were serving breakfast when I reserved one. No free wifi. No monitors in the seat to track plane progress and watch a movie. All of those either cost extra or were separate. Due to constant line I was forced to use the bathroom when I landed"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Bathroom could always improve."
Pros: "Excellent crew. Seats pretty comfortable and fair leg room for economy"
Cons: "Good choices of movies and shows, but was tricky getting access."
Cons: "One of my better flights on Alaska. The chicken sandwich was very tasty, the crew was great, they made sure I had what ever I needed. Water, coffee, food & more than once"
Pros: "Free texting"
Cons: "My flight was delayed a long time"
Cons: "LAX airport plane docking took 30 minutes and not enough information to get to International Terminal."
Cons: "Flight was delayed taking off now we are in Seattle sitting on the tarmac for over and hour 15 mins to just get to a gare"
Pros: "Nothing I can think of at the moment."
Cons: "I didn't like anyt of it."
Pros: "The crew is very kind an helpful , the seats are comfy and flight was nice and smooth and got to destination early ."
Cons: "Crying baby and turbulence. Nothing in anyone’s control."
Pros: "Great service and flight crew!"
Cons: "The turbulence was the only thing that sucked!"
Pros: "Entertainment offerings, except for lack of music."
Cons: "As usual, the seats are crammed together. They ran out of cups, so we were told to keep the ones we had. We did, however was to no avail. They did not make a second pass with water or other drink offerings on this 5 1/2 flight. The bathroom was a mess."
Pros: "The festive yet relaxing lighting during boatding, the great in flight movies, the friendly helpful staff, our generous legroom, the comfier than usual seats, the food ordering system."
Cons: "The food quality could be improved with some more organic options."
Pros: "Flight from Newark to SanFran was smooth, and entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t overly welcoming (though certainly not rude at all), and boarding was rushed at the gate just to stand in huge line waiting to get on aircraft."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "They don’t give enough drink"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/vegan options for meals. In 2018 it’s unnacceptable to have ZERO veggie options, especially on a flight to LA. Come on! I ended up having to pay for 2 meals that I could only eat parts of. And it took more than 1 HOUR for them to bring me these meals. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 mins for a meal, that I PAID for, to be delivered to my seat. I was starving, forced to waste money on meals I couldn’t fully eat AND had to wait over an HOUR to receive them. I am beyond disappointed."
Pros: "I didn’t know what to expect but I had an excellent trip. Enough leg room for a five hour flight. The entertainment was excellent, many choices of movies. No food was provided, you have to pay for any food or snack. You are given a cup of soda not the whole can. But I came prepared with food and drink. Overall, very good airline!"
Cons: "No food or snack are provided unless you purchase it!"
Cons: "No comfort given to passengers despite 2.5 hr delay in leaving and another 1 hr on the ground after landing"
Pros: "Missed floght"
Cons: "Alaska overbooking to 107% (TSA’s explanation) at security checkpoint D at SFO FROM 10-1am caused many missed flights and many disgruntled passengers due to TSA agents being incredibly in hospitable."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, so friendly and down to earth. Great customer service. Make flight attendant, Stan, I think, was great!"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order for the flight. Food and drink ordering didn’t work."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was down. They ran out of food. They didn’t tell us the tv was down until after they had us check our carry on so I couldn’t even get my book"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Air vents let very little air flow so it was pretty warm during the entire 5 1/2 hrflight. 737-900 has lane."
Cons: "Temp was warm"
Pros: "Again I had premium sitting, very comfortable. I did have a meal, coconut chicken and jasmine rice. It was tasty but I wish they had given out a packet of soy sauce."
Cons: "There were fewer people on this flight and I had the whole row to my self. Unfortunately I was in row 6 behind 1st class that had the pullout trays. So I was not able to lift the arms in between the seats and stretch out."
Pros: "I like everything from this company"
Pros: "The crew and especially a certain male flight attendant were absolutely wonderful! Great sense of humor and personality. As this was my first time flying with Alaska, I feel very positive about future travels with them."
Pros: "The crew was wonderfull, very attentive, pilot got Us before schedule. Overall very pleasant and smooth flight."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about the flight."
Pros: "The seats and stowage were expected in comparison to a 737-800. Boarding time was fairly quick and organized."
Cons: "Boarding announcement was localized using a small portable microphone/speaker combo. Not great if you were sitting in another gate where seating was available. Food was pay as you go. Soft drinks and water were free. No in flight entertainment in the seat. They use GoGo Flight and rent tablets for 10.00 USD. The videos would skip and you will miss key elements of a plot. I was underwhelmed by this airline and will likely not take them again for a 5.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Alaska's crew and equipment continue to be top notch. Helpful and friendly at all times."
Cons: "Newark facilities are severely lacking: poor signage outside security and gate area too crowded leading to confusing mob-scene at boarding. Ground delay of 45 minutes after leaving gate. Gogo wifi connectivity was extremely frustrating: very slow and constantly disconnecting: made it impossible to actually use wifi for work related tasks."
Cons: "Limited choice of movies and my movie discontinued part way through and I did not have time to replay."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Small selection of movies. Must use one's own portable device to view movies, or rent one of their tablets."
Pros: "I really did like that they checked on us several time and made sure we had enough to drink. Nice crew and all in all a pretty good flight."
Pros: "Was given two center seats when asked for other sets they moved us up to front so we had more room plus got off faster"
Cons: "Maintenance issues caused extensive delays. Ran out of food options by the time they got to my row."
Pros: "Really good flight with great crew"
Cons: "I wish there were vegan options"
Pros: "Good pilot, helpful announcements"
Cons: "Sat in front of emergency row so couldn't recline"
Cons: "The fact that the shampoo from one bathroom was not available so had to wait to use the other one to just wash your hands or entirely"
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "The airplanewas a bit cramped for such a long flight"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Communication with our delay...NOT TOO GOOD"
Cons: "No worries with Hawaiian Airlines’ staff and service … the “free meal” (sandwich) was unexpected, tasty and something not found on other domestic carriers."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Flight was a little cold - but in Hawaii, not always a bad thing!"
Cons: "Incoming plane was late, but we made it to Kona in good time, and we were out of the airport and at our lodging 30 minutes before I thought we would be, so we must have been on time"
Pros: "The crew did the best with the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "This flight was extremely disorganized and Hawaiian Airlines did a terrible job of updating the situation to its guests. We had no idea our plane was 4 hours delayed because their websites never displayed that (said everything was on time). We only found out when we went to board and they informed"
Pros: "Crew ok"
Pros: "Quick flight from Maui to the Big Island"
Cons: "A bit more padding to the seats"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Entertainment set up is terrible, only available through app for purchase on tablet or smartphone. Cheap and antiquated. No vegetarian options for food."
Pros: "Food and drink were included, plane was very comfortable, and the service was friendly and professional... great experience."
Pros: "Airbus 330 best"
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "They lost one piece of luggage. Waiting to see if they find it and its returned"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Getting to our seats I was allowed to move one row up to an exit row which was great! Service by attendants was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Boarding, check in and crew were ok."
Cons: "I knew, based on my flight to Hawaii, that there was no included entertainment - a big disappointment. I also knew their food would be mediocre. However, I had called the airline before our trip to request vegetarian meals. We were told that was taken care of. On the flight, we were told that the only meals on that flight were very mediocre chicken sandwiches. Thus, we had no meals."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Nice refreshing juice!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."
Cons: "We ended up upgrading because kayak doesn’t let you assign a seat and we were the last to get a seat on a very full flight. I will never use Kayak again."
Cons: "Almost everything on the in flight entertainment system cost money and the screen was not very responsive."
Pros: "The service and food and drinks"
Cons: "How dirty the plane was and especially the restrooms"
Pros: "The gate crew was outstanding in a very difficult situation. They were all very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Scheduled departure was eleven a.m. and actual departure was over seven hours later. We were each provided a $100 credit memo for future travel, but when we tried to reschedule our return trip to avoid LAX we were told the credit could only be used for new travel. Not happy about either the delay or the inability to use the $100 each credits. On top of that, we had to pay $400 rescheduling fees for the two tickets. That looks like a threefer to me. Pretty much sucks."
Cons: "Not clear what line to stand in signs would help Such as if you had a boarding pass you can just stand in the line that will give your baggage tag versus just standing in the general line"
Pros: "Seats were more comfortable than those on the long flight from LAX to OGG."
Cons: "Checked bag didn’t make the connection."
Cons: "Overcrowded and too noisy"
Cons: "Very unclear about where/when to board in Kona"
Pros: "Speedy and friendly service throughout. I did the self check-in and when the worker checked my ID she's told me I was military so I didn't need to pay the check-in baggage fee and refunded me. Awesome benefit to those that serve."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Variety of drinks"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours Not serving food and snacks until 2.5 hours after boarding even though it was already 4.5 hours after lunchtime and everyone was starving Flight attendants not responding to the service requests at all"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane showed up 2 1/2 hours late. Seats in terminal were very uncomfortable and staff had no clue what was going on. They had 3 flights trying to leave from same gate at same time. Plane seats were also very uncomfortable. Once plane was boarded and on way pilot came on and blamed the delay on maintenance issues and weather. Airline delay caused 2 hour delay getting our rental car. We didn't get to our lodging until midnight and should have been there by 7 pm."
Cons: "Not much value for first class"
Pros: "Overall I was happy. Would fly again."
Cons: "Advertisements annoyed me, especially after waking up. Turn them off plz."

Cons: "No free entertainment available on a 5.5 hr flight. Touch display for movies didn't work very well."
Pros: "The plane was held a few minutes to give us time for a quick transfer since we were late arriving. Even our luggage made it onto the plane with us. The whole Hawaiian staff and crew were so helpful getting us to our connecting flight in time. We were even offered a yummy Rum Punch drink on our flight. Hawaiian flight attendants all the friendliest and most helpful of any airline I've experienced!"

Pros: "Moved up our flight."
Pros: "The short flight and quick service"

Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Comfier seats"
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."
Pros: "Awesome"
Cons: "Issues with connecting flights so had to sit in different place, seat was broken"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"

Cons: "To many screaming kids"

Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Leg space was less Take off got delayed"
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Late departure. Almost missed connection. Even though we planned a decent amount of time between flights. Always something causing delays when we leave from Newark."

Cons: "Couldn't recline in my emergency exit row"
Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."
Cons: "Its a 3.5 hr flight. No charging outlets available. Food options very limited by the time they got to me, row 26. No in -seat entertainment screen. Hard seats."
Pros: "Flight team were wonderful!"
Cons: "the short connection screwed me"
Pros: "The boarding didn’t take long at all. The staff and crew were very pleasant and polite. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "Well you get what you pay for so I’m not really complaining here. The economy seating was a bit cramped. I’m 6 foot and it was not comfortable for me. I can only imagine how it eould be for people taller and bigger than me. Flight was too short for meas. Snacks were good though."
Cons: "No check in to Minsk from Paris"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "Worst"

Pros: "After 4 delayed and missed flights they did put me in a motel"
Cons: "Trying to make arrangements and being on hold for 30 to 53 minutes several times all while trying to second guess flights. Not being allowed on a flight after being bumped several times because only 1st class seats were available . Sprinting through the airport with all luggage only to be told I couldon't not board even though the flight did not leave for 5 more minutes"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"
Pros: "Nothing. It’s a terrible airline. Seriously, don’t book with them unless you’re desperate or you want to have an anxiety attack."
Cons: "American isn’t my preferred airline for obvious reasons (delays, notoriously bad service, old planes, and a lack of amenities like WiFi and tv’s), but now I’ll never spend my money with them again. They took me off an already delayed flight after I’d already boarded to examine my smart bag. I know that lithium batteries can’t be taken in the underbelly of the plane and I knew my bag would likely be checked at the gate (why I removed the battery and left it at home in the first place). When they asked me if I had a lithium battery in my bag I said “no.” They then gate checked the bag and allowed me on the plane. After everyone had been boarded (half an hour after we’d been scheduled to take off) they then called my name out on the speaker. I had to then de-board the plane and re-explain to staff that there was no lithium battery in my bag. The staff didn’t believe me citing the infallible logic: “there are ports so there’s a battery.” I told them again and again that the battery had been removed and the charging ports—while there—were inert as they weren’t attached to the battery. STILL, I had to remove all of my clothes from the bag, and open every single compartment (of which there were many) for them to allow me to get back onto the plane. They were telling me that they might have to “rebook the flight” if my bag couldn’t get on. I don’t think I need to explain how agitated/terrified that made me."
Pros: "The crew was really good. The flight had no issues. I was pleased."
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "I pay $30 more for my bags"
Cons: "I pay $30 more for my bags,"
Cons: "Phoenix airport is horrible for on time departures. Always."
Cons: "Nice crew. Nice flight. Wish there was a bit more legroom"
Pros: "The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher."
Pros: "Great first class cabin crew."
Cons: "My flight time was changed because the crew was not on time. Then it was changed back after everyone had already made accommodations for their connections, me included."
Cons: "I was annoyed when I was told I would have to check my carry on because there was no more room in the overhead compartments. Then as I was walking down the aisle to get to my seat I saw a lot of room in the overheads."
Cons: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Pilot had a sense of humor."
Cons: "Entertainment seemed canned"
Pros: "I like that I made it home alive."
Cons: "Everything about Departing and arriving was a Poor experience. I might not be using this particular airline again. 4 Airlines now on my list of do not use."
Pros: "No need to drive from OKC!!!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."
Pros: "Fast and easy service"
Cons: "In 2 weeks, my husband and I had 4 flights with American and none of them went as planned. We endured flight cancellation, incomplete rebooking with another airline, rude customer service agents, multiple flight delays as well as multiple day lost luggage. Finally, it cost $2K more to get to my destination. Obviously not flying American again."
Pros: "Entertainment streaming was decent."
Pros: "Staff very professional, everything else went as planned. That's all one needs."
Cons: "We had a hard time hearing (clarity of speech) announcements over the intercom at the gate & on the plains (specially when the captain spoke). Nothing life threatening, but wouldn't want to miss something important."
Pros: "Got me to where I'm going safely. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flying is painful"
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The cabin was very warm and almost unbearable. The flight attendant for the first class section was very rude."
Pros: "The flight left on time - I do appreciate that."
Cons: "We were forced to check our Uppababy Vista stroller at EWR departures that we hoped to check at the gate. Needless to say this made it difficult to get our toddler through security. At baggage claim only half our stroller was there - they had disconnected the seat from the wheels. Luckily we spotted what looked like a similar frame to ours at the gate when we landed. It then took another forty minutes for the baggage claim office person to go through security, to the arrival gate and back to baggage claim."
Cons: "No personal space or legroom. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed but the airline "autorouted" off my flight without informing me. I ran across the airport in Charlotte with my 2 small kids to find my original flight still there and I was kicked off of it. Irate and beyond bothered I got nothing but I'm sorry and you can get another flight in over an hour. So my small children and I will not arrive beyond dinner and bedtime. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised."
Cons: "Landing was ROUGH"
Pros: "Great attendants. Easy ride. Easy take off, easy landing."
Cons: "We departed late due to something going on in the runway. No free wifi option."
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Stewardesses tried to make up for disastrous management mistakes. One customer service rep was helpful when Kiosk refused to give me boarding pass or seat assignment or pay for baggage check--ALL USING MY AMERICAN AIRLINES ADVANTAGE MASTERCARD!"
Cons: "Change of airports from EWR-Oak to JFK/SFO after I had printed boarding passes. Got call from AA but when I picked up, no one was on the line. Equipment prob, they said. I think it was two half full planes and they screwed the EWR passengers. Manhattan was in gridlock because of UN session. I discovered change when I arrived to check luggage curbside at EWR. 3 hours of stop and go traffic to get there. See other box re kiosk problems. Boarding pass didn't have my TSA FTN so had to go back. Could not check luggage curbside. Got seat in last row when I noticed boarding pass had no seat assignment. They lost my luggage at SFO. There's more, but..."
Cons: "The exit row seats were very confining g..way to narrow due to type of seat used..had the tray in the arm"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"
Pros: "i was delayed first for 2 and a half hours in newark which changed to 4 hours and were told because of refueling. which made me miss my connecting flight in phoenix. then the new flight i was put on in phoenix i was rushed onto the plane only to sit and wait on it for another 2 hour before taking off. terrible experience"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "1 hour on the runway for a 1 hour flight"
Pros: "No lines at checkpoints..on time departure and arrival!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to crew unavailability. Entertainment did not work due to connectivity issued during flight. No cookies nor snacks were served vs outbound flight where they offered 3 snacks!"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Cons: "More water, drinks. The food was absolutely horrible."
Pros: "Very courteous crew!"
Cons: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness"
Pros: "The crew was quite nice"
Cons: "Newark airport terminal C is totally a mess"
Pros: "We landed 45 minutes early!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but paid up for extra leg room"
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Pros: "The crew was awesome! Best flight I've ever had."
Pros: "No entertainment. Not working No internet. Crewfelt like they were forced to be “nice”."
Cons: "I was not on this flight because my previous United flight was late! So I am having to sit all from 8:00 am till 8:25 pm in the airport. I am not happy."
Cons: "Still have not left."
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "kosher meals were on plane. extra legroom was comfortable. Good choice of movies"
Cons: "We started to board on time and after group 1 boarded, they said they pulled the crew for a different flight and we needed to wait til 1:30 AM ( 2.5 hours delay) to board. Then 30 minutes later they called us back after finding another crew. It was very chaotic and made not sense"
Pros: "All the flight crew was incredibly attentive, particularly with those with special needs. From helping them to use the facilities to getting them little extras. It was a nice thing to see - especially in a such long (14+ hrs) flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system and service carts were quite outdated. There were no visible place to charge my phone. It takes away from the strong people service."
Pros: "United staff worked with me to book a round-about itinerary on a different airline that got me to my destination within 8 hours of the original flight. Progress announcements were made at regular, predictable intervals."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled an hour after scheduled takeoff due to mechanical issues. The plane was actually repaired, but the time it took to do so exceeded the flight crew's hours. I understand the practical implications, but in the moment it did feel maddeningly bureaucratic."
Cons: "The itinerary printed out that I was traveling Lufthansa so my nephew left me off at Terminal B; but after trying to print out my boarding pass unsuccessfully, the supervisor said that I was booked on United which is at Term C. I had to rush on the air train to the crowded Airtrain & running thru Security & Customs."
Cons: "Delayed due to a late crew member. Arrived 2 hours late into O'Hare making for a very tight connection. Other than the delay, all was fine."
Pros: "2 sear rows so no middle seat"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Flight okay"
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Bathroom was dirty"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"
Pros: "Three seats to myself, not crowded."
Pros: "Departure from Newark was delayed but the man at the desk, an entertaining guy, kept us informed."
Pros: "United Airlines for a change did a decent job flying back to LAS unlike our flight from BUF to EWR which got canceled and we had to drive to Newark which was not only disappointing but to witness customer service uncaring even more distressing."
Cons: "We may not choose UA for our family from now on. Quite a bit of confusion even when trying to reach customer service over phone, the hold time is 15 to 20 min?"
Pros: "Movie selection!"
Cons: "Plane delayed due to maintenance at the hub airport of Newark and no gates upon arrival in DFW at midnight."
Cons: "Boarding by group is ridiculous. Should be back of the plane people after kids & wheelchairs. One small bag of pretzels & a cup of drink. JetBlue gives many choices of snacks & whole can of drink. DirecTv - $7.99, JetBlue is free. We were a party of 3 that picked our seats to be together. Got to the airport & our seats were split up by desk clerk & she didn't even inform us of seat assignment change. She also put 2 of us in the Exit row without informing us. Did not know we were assigned to Exit row until we boarded. Our overhead bins were full with other passengers carryons. This should not be. Why can't passengers use their own overhead bins. Stewardess would not help us, she said find a spot up front, if not you'll have to check carryons. Terrible."
Pros: "We arrived safely at PDX"
Cons: "We left 3 hrs late, arrived very late at night, I did not get home until 2 a.m. There was no apology. There were no plugs for computers in the back of the plane and I got stuck between a fat person to my left and a fat person in front of me who leaned their seat back as far as possible. It was hideous."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 5:30 did not depart until around 7:20!!! Had to sit on plane for almost 2 hrs!! We were NOT OFFERED anything to drink Not even water!! Jet Blue would NEVER be neglectful, they are very service oriented. Plane was full & 2 babies on board one was fussy crying at times. It was s nightmare!! I was exhausted from traveling to NYC & Philly! & the delay & lack of service was AWFUL!! Could not watch TV, bc It either connects to phone, I could not connect it or I think you had to pay! Unheard of!!!I love to watch CNN, MSNBC & Fox it makes the time fly!! Hopefully will Never have to fly United Again"
Pros: "It was nice to get free wine on the flight. Had I know what I was about to endure I likely would have had more. Honestly. I am uncertain how you can stay in business."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold and the excuse of a blanket is really insulting to be warm enough to sleep. The video screen was tiny and grainy. Every time the PA system was used it buzzed so whatever was being said wasn't comprehend-able. The biggest complaint was the seating room. I understand that you want to get people into more legroom seats but honestly there should be a regulation for the inhumane way you treated those of us that did not ante up more! I thought I alone have these opinions but once you get me back home, you loose my business forever. I will take my Transatlantic flights every six weeks elsewhere."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "It took pass our departure time to get people onto the plane, the plane was super delayed 8:25 turned into a little over 10, and I was super uncomfortable the whole flight. Spent the majority of my day in the airport just waiting on this flight."
Cons: "United sent out a series of delayed flight communications times that all contradicted each other. Flight updates did not give me adequate time to arrange my plans to accommodate their sporadic updates for fliget 4132, resulting in me missing my flight after paying a $95 dollar cab fare. May 1, 2017 United failed in my eyes of a loyal customer."
Cons: "after transferring from terminal B after a long walk then another long walk to transfer to Terminal C and another walk to baggage claim for a 70 yr.old woman and no transport available is intolerable and unacceptable! It is so disgusting that I am a frequent flyer via United Airlines and getting more and more dissatisfied cause of the troubles I'm encounterring flying with United Airlines! I should think twice,the next time I'm booking with the airline for my next flight!"
Pros: "Flight attendant. The actual flight"
Cons: "The Gate agent was rude and fresh. At least 10 passengers told me they did not hear the boarding announcements until the final boarding was called. When I said to my friend as she was running toward the gate that we didn't hear the announcements. The gate agent told me I was the only one because all the other passengers did. I told him that wasn't true. He would not look at me and repeated to go down the jet way or I would miss the flight. Meanwhile more passengers were running for the gate. The message board message displayed "preboarding". I was sitting in the gate area for 40 minutes."
Pros: "That small propeller plane was an exciting experience!"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Crowded"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled after being delayed a few times. I was offered to be on standby on flights that's were overbooked the next day. The closest airport was 2 hours away with a different airline."
Cons: "Not enough space"
Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It's united."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Pros: "didn't crash"
Cons: "the plane started while there apparently was a hydraulic problem which made them decide to turn around right before the Atlantic and fly back all the way to New York in a plane that shouldn't have taken off in the first place. Flight eventually got cancelled."
Pros: "More luggage storage (overhead and under the seats) on this international flight than on domestic. Most everything else was as expected."
Cons: "The toilets smelled and were messy a few hours into it. (I was on a Korean Airlines flight recently and their toilets were always clean and nice!). The crew were mostly efficient and worked well together BUT only one (out of the 4 or 5 in our section) smiled at passengers and looked like she was actually enjoying her job. One blanket wasn't cleaned well enough."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic ! My daughter was anxious during some unexpected turbulence and she was very supportive . Movies and entertainment were good . Food , acceptable."
Cons: "The space allotted per person is ridiculous. And I upgraded to extra leg room ... What extra legroom ??"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 4 hours, there was no clarity on what was going on. They made us change aircrafts, the ground staff was mean at best. In spite of the 4 hour wait they didn't even bother serving food or made any announcement to handle passenger anxiety and concerns. Delays are sometimes unavoidable and I have had experiences in the past but none that was handled this unprofessionally"
